An Introduction to the Cannabis Industry is an eight-week course, provided in partnership with the LBCA, that covers all sectors of the industry from cultivation to retail. The course will introduce a new group of students to the cannabis industry while helping seasoned professionals enhance their understanding of the industry, including its heavy regulation. Students will also benefit from the course's regional focus, with an overview of the history of cannabis in California and the state's track-and-trace system for cannabis products from plants to consumers' hands. 
While this course does not provide job placement services, the content has been designed by industry professionals who understand the skills and knowledge needed to work in the cannabis industry and enhance marketability.
Developed and taught by cannabis industry leaders, the course will extensively cover the cannabis industry as overseen statewide by the Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) and locally under area-specific municipal ordinances. It will include:
Week 1: Introduction
Week 2: Cultivation
Week 3: Manufacturing 
Week 4: Distribution
Week 5: Retail 
Week 6: Labs
